Caesarstone is dedicated to sustainability at every level.

We are consistently trying to improve. Just meeting current industry standards isn’t enough – we’re always trying to exceed them and push our industry to adopt more sustainable practices and better eco-efficiency.

The company’s premium quartz surfaces are both designed and manufactured with our planet in mind.
Some of our activities include:

  • From start to finish, our production processes are rigorously scrutinized from a health, safety and environmental perspective, with constant monitoring and reviews of processes, standards and results.
  • Our recycled quartz stone surfaces contain up to 42% reclaimed quartz – making a real impact on preserving the world’s precious resources.
  • Our products meet the exacting American Greenguard standards, and we’ve been credited by the National Sanitation Foundation for having surfaces safe enough for use in laboratories, healthcare facilities, and food preparation environments.
  • We’re also a responsible and supportive employer. Our employees enjoy a safe workplace and we strive to deliver exemplary working conditions.

Contribution to LEED

About LEED

Developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is a green building rating system, which rates buildings of all types (residential, commercial, new and renewed). Based on the number of points achieved, a project then receives one of four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum. Products (like Caesarstone quartz slabs) can contribute points to a project based on different parameters.
